1. AmaruWritten by TEAM GOOD THINGS

The faces behind Amaru in St Katherine Docks are restaurateur Bal Thind and chef Victor Garvey. Offering fresh, flavourful and accessible takeaway food, the new all-day eatery serves light and healthy Japanese cuisine with a Peruvian twist. Referred to as ‘Nikkei’, Amaru’s cuisine balances the delicate classics of Japan with flavours of Peru by combining new world ingredients from both cultures. The menu at Amaru – which means ‘fertility’ in Peruvian and ‘abundance’ in Japanese – features salads, ceviches and tiraditos. Sashimi will also take centre-stage, using fish delivered each day from co-operative fishing boats stationed in and around the British Isles. Examples of signature dishes are prawn ceviche with coconut, mango, Rocoto pepper and red onion, and toasted sesame crusted tuna with avocado, spicy sesame dressing, truffle and umeboshi plum. Desserts are also heavenly, with white miso cheesecake, green tea tiramisu and mandarin and Valrhona gran crus chocolate truffles the pick of the bunch. You can also order freshly-squeezed juices to partner your puds – from watermelon, yuzu and carrot to apple and ginger. The choice is yours.
